We The Curious

An unbeatable Bristol harbourside location and a unique, award winning science and discovery centre with flexible event space for business meetings and events for up to 480 guests. An amazing venue for your awards ceremony, conference, presentation, training days, sparkling dinners, parties and drinks receptions, and a real buzz place for weddings and other celebrations.

Imagine wowing your guests with an exclusive planetarium show or a drinks reception amongst some truly fascinating exhibits. To boot, the views over Millennium Square, the vibrant Harbourside and Bristol Cathedral are a real talking point; this is a cool place to hang out. Hold an outdoor event in one of the landmark public squares, with captivating art, water and light displays.

Let’s look at those event spaces: on the top floor with private terraces is the Rosalind Franklin Room & Annexe, with 468 square metres of space for up to 480 standing guests, 460 seated in theatre style, or 300 for dinner. The adjoining Annexe is flooded with natural light and offers a further 200 square metres of space; with access onto the South Terrace, the full capacity is 210 guests standing, 140 sat in theatre style, or 100 for dinner. It can be split into three smaller spaces of 67 square metres, each holding 70 people; perfect for smaller events or for breakout and refreshment space.

Hire the 3D Planetarium for product launches, presentations and exhibitions; beneath the iconic silver dome is tiered seating for 98 people. And there’s further exhibition space with interactive exhibits over two floors, including the Galileo Gallery, with high ceilings and full height windows. Dress these spaces for the look and atmosphere you want, and expect the latest in audio-visual technology. Catering comes via a talented in-house catering team who use only the finest seasonal ingredients; chose from with a wide selection of menus to suit your event.

With outstanding green credentials, We The Curious has won the prestigious Gold Green Tourism award for sustainability. There’s discounted parking close by and Bristol temple Meads is just a 20-minute walk or a 5-minute drive away.
